How to Convince your Boss that Cority Connect 2020 is the must-attend EHSQ event of the year

July 18, 2019 Emma Swan

Cority Connect is Cority’s annual user conference, taking place February 10 – 13, 2020, in Nashville, Tennessee. This year marks the 20th Cority Connect, so you can expect the biggest and best conference yet - full of compelling sessions from the industry's top thought leaders and a diverse group of Cority's global customers, consultants, and partners from a multitude of industries. 

All in all, Cority Connect is a must-attend event if you're a Cority user looking to take your environmental, health, safety, and quality management programs to the next level with actionable learnings from three days of hands-on training, insightful presentations, and invaluable networking opportunities. 

Now that you're convinced and ready to pack your bags for Nashville, you're probably thinking how can I convince my manager to let me attend?  We've got you covered. Check out our tips below to secure approval from your boss.

How to Convince your Boss 101 

Persuasion Technique #1: Use the “ideal outcome” positioning statement: Ask your boss, “what is the ideal outcome for our EHS and Quality program results this year?” If they say, reduced injury rates, a stronger safety culture, or improved data management – you’re in a great position.

Follow up with, “Are you willing to invest in my training, so I can get us there?” Then you’re ready to present your solution: Cority Connect 2020.

Persuasion Technique #2: Change the conversation from an expense to an investment. Think about it this way: if you invest in a new roof for your house that you’re planning on selling, the sale price of your house will increase because of the new roof. The investment is worth it because it's generating more value than the cost.

With the Cority Connect 2020 conference pass, you’ll have access to best practice workshops and training sessions, educational presentations and material, and the chance to connect with experts in your specific industry.  Plus, you'll benefit from an even greater return on your overall Cority investment. The long-term value that you gain outweighs the initial cost.
